Hi all, I am a long time lurker and appreciatior of this forum, now have a couple of questions of my own to ask.
I have a 2013 C63 estate, black/cream with 19 inch wheels and privacy rear glass. 33000 miles. I have had the car five years and love it. It is the most fun sports saloon/estate I have ever driven, and so exciting I sold my 996 Turbo S as it was redundant.
but the restless person inside me just wants a change as a daily driver. And a slightly more modern car.
so, two questions for the experienced folk here
1) if I buy a 2017/8 E63 S estate, will it be as much/more fun than my car?
2) I could, if I raided the piggy bank, keep the C63 (trade in, around low twenties) as a kind of weekend classic and also buy the E. but that still means storage and ongoing costs. Would that be mad?
Nice one!I was/am a total die hard W204 C63 enthusiast, proved by the fact that I owned two of them over over the last ten years. I never thought I would sell my last one, especially after reading a few initial reports on its replacement, the W205 C63 Twin Turbo. Then when I last took the car in for a service at my local dealership, I was offered a test drive of a late 2018 W205 C63 Premium Model, expecting to be a little disappointed......... How wrong I was, it’s moved on so much from the W204, and is better in every way. A week later and I was driving a W205 C63, not the one I test drove, but a slightly later coupe and I’m still loving it, especially after having MSL do their magic on it and now producing much more power with a simple stage one tune.
Is it better than my previous W204 C63’s....... Yes. Is it the perfect C63 ...... No.
What would make it the perfect C63 ....... if all of the mechanics were put into a W204 body.
